On The Verge: Drake Set to Release New Music For ‘Nothing Was The Same’



Drake is set to release his new album Nothing Was The Same in September. While the Young Money rapper has been pretty tight lipped about his new album, his Cash Money CEO Baby is talking about Drizzy and the new record.

As reported by

“‘Drake, I told him this when I first met him, I thought he was gonna be special to the game and he proving that every time,’ Birdman told MTV News in Los Angeles.

“Baby is one of the few who has gotten a preview of Drizzy’s upcoming Nothing Was the Same LP, and it left an impression on him. ‘I think Drake, he’s one of those n— that’s gonna change the game every time he come, because he’s a talented animal. He’s somethin’ I never been around before,’ said the music mogul responsible for the careers of Lil Wayne, Juvenile and Nicki Minaj.”

Drake has been relatively quiet the last couple of weeks, with the only major news being his alleged drama with Chris Brown. Brown was rumored to be the cause Drake’s no-show at the BET Awards. But this week, Drake seems set to put out more new music for Nothing Was The Same.

 According to

“Just one week after Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail and only a few weeks after the night Drake dropped four songs—“The Motion,” “Jodeci Freestyle,” Party Next Door’s “Over Here,” and of course, Migos’ “Versace (Remix)”—he may be releasing new music. Drake teased [a] photo on Instagram [last night].”

After what’s been a pretty good summer for rap music, with aforementioned Magna Carta from Hov, Kanye’s Yeezus, and notable offerings from the likes of J. Cole and Wale. It’s now Drake’s turn to take his spot this year amongst the rap elites. And while they haven’t done Drake any favors by setting the bar pretty high, I’m sure he won’t disappoint.
